Anni recorded an authentic incident about a 10-year-old Chinese girl. Because her father was a dissident who has been consistently monitored by the government, she was taken from the school by the secret police and not allowed to continue attending school.

“The Questioning”

In July 2012, ZHU Rikun and his friends drove to Xinyu in Jiangxi province to support three independent candidates for National People's Congress. At late midnight, the police came into their hotel room for interrogation, and Zhu Rikun turned on a small camera to record what happened next.

Curator’s wordsIn Wenhai's book "Gaze of Exile: Witnessing Chinese Independent Documentary", ZHU Rikun is described as follows: "He is recognized in the circle as the 'handbook of China’s underground film ', ' you’d like to know something about Chinese underground film? Ask ZHU Rikun!'". Among the history of Chinese independent film that began in the early 1990s, Zhu is such an important existence that cannot be ignored at all stages.
